Mathematica in Chemical Engineering

I just thought I'd pass on a question from a faculty member in Chemical Engineering to see if any of you could help to answer this question with your experience: In which areas is Mathematica being used as a replacement for process simulators like Aspen Plus, HYSYS, Pro/II?

It don't seems to me an interesting question. The products are not comparable. I use Mathematica for analytical/numeric one process dynamics not for complete flowsheet simulation (dynamic /stationary).
One thing is to solve a reactor dynamic (control) problem other is to simulate a complete refinery (reactor, distillation, etc.) with properties estimation (and data bank).
A lot of work must be done to put mathematica at that level.

I am very hopeful that this forum will be important to the Chemical Engineering teaching.
